Camping


tentThe Ukiah Field Office offers a variety of camping opportunities for southern Mendocino county, Lake county, and northwestern Yolo county. There are no camping fees and no reservations.  All sites are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Most public lands administered by BLM are available for "primitive" camping, which means you may set up camp outside of a developed campground.  If you choose to do so, you will be expected to obtain a campfire permit and set up a fire safe camp with adequate sanitary arrangements.  We recommend that you bring some water with you even in campgrounds that offer water at the site.  Water found in streams or ponds is not suitable for human consumption without treatment.

All campers should be aware that there is a 14 day per year limit on the use of any campsite on public lands.
